1 2 3 4 Years Sober (Journal Time!)



Yep, that’s right.

I’ve been sober for four years.


Not a drink.

Not a puff of the ganj.



I’m excited (if you can’t tell).

For two reasons.

That being the first.

The second,

I feel better than any drug ever made me feel.


Because I’m doing what makes me happy.

I feel in total alignment with the highest most

creative and confident part of myself.

You know who you are.

You know what to do.

You’re ready.

You’re willing.

    Congrats and thanks for putting your time into this page, it’s important for me to have places like this to visit when I need a reminder that there are clear thinking people who live sober lives and are happy. After two years clean and sober I feel like I am the happiest person I know, but it’s a challenge to not get sucked into the weird thoughts of the lost souls out there so thanks again for the reminder. You rock!

      Thank you so much! People such are yourself inspire me every day. Congrats to YOU! I know it’s tough. I know how much you have to let go of. I know how much strength it takes. And you found that within yourself and it keeps growing stronger and stronger with each day of sobriety. You are growing so much through this process! Thank you again for sharing part of your journey with me!
